Imprints by Rachel Ann Nunes - Book Review

Sometimes what you can't see means everything.
A young woman is missing. In desperation, her parents turn to Autumn Rain for help. Autumn reads imprints—emotions left mysteriously behind on certain treasured objects. But is this ability a blessing or a curse?
Sometimes Autumn isn’t sure—her life has become far from normal—but for people who have missing loved ones, her talent might mean the difference between life and death. Even the infuriating Detective Martin has asked for Autumn’s help, though at times she feels more like a suspect than a consultant. Too often Autumn finds herself retreating to her antiques shop and the company of her best friend, Jake Ryan, to avoid notice.
But soon more than one woman is mission, and Autumn teams up with private eye Ethan McConnell to investigate their disappearance. Ethan’s attraction to her is a pleasant change from Jake’s frustrating offers of friendship, but once Autumn takes that first step, she sets in motion a series of events that risk not only her own life but the lives of those she cares about most.
Imprints is one of the most enjoyable books I've read in a long time. The blend of suspense, romance, and paranormal kept me intrigued throughout the story. The paranormal aspect was different and refreshing, but still believable and fit well in the story. I adored the heroine, Autumn, and fell completely in love with Jake (Ethan was really cute too, but oh, Jake - ooh la la. When you finish the book e-mail me so we can drool over him together).
Imprints is a sequel to Eyes of a Stranger, the story of Autumn's sister, but the author does a fabulous job of making Imprints read like a stand-alone. I would recommend if you're going to read Eyes of a Stranger that you read it first.
Imprints was so much fun to read. Autumn is quirky and delightful. She feels like a beloved friend. If you're looking for a wonderful and clean paranormal romance you should pick up Imprints. I hope you love it as much as I did.
